More About Melody Carlson
Melody A Carlson I started writing "professionally" about twenty years ago. I quickly learned that I'm a fast writer and, as a result, I've published more than 200 books--with more than 6 million books sold. And it stuns me to write out those numbers today. How did that happen? I've been told I'm in the top twenty "most prolific authors" of all time. Although I'm not certain this is true, it does make me wonder--and I wonder how other authors (in previous generations) managed to write so many books without the use of a computer. Last year I won a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times. But that doesn't mean I'm ready to retire. I have lots more books coming out and new ideas popping into my head all the time. I write from a studio right next to the house I share with my husband in Oregon. My dog Audrey goes to work with me every morning. I have to say...it's a pretty good life...and I am grateful to God for every bit of it.

These Boots Weren't Made for Walking  Mar 23, 2010
I was very pleased w/ this book. It was a great read. I received the book quickly and in great condition. Pleased all around.
 
A Nice Way to Spend an Afternoon  Dec 10, 2008
Cassidy Cantrell was living the life. She even splurged on an expensive pair of Valentino boots to celebrate what she knew was going to be a promotion at work. Little did she know she was going to be fired, lose her boyfriend, become a victim of identity theft, and have to move back home.

But wait! To add insult to injury her mom has lost weight and maybe leading a more exciting life than she is. OH. THE. HORROR!

Melody Carlson creates an engaging read with her quirky characters. I liked Cassie's story, but I've got to tell you, I cheered with the strides her mother underwent improving her life.

You Go Girl!

Hey, I wouldn't do or wear half of the clothes she did, but I still rooted for her through the whole story. The only quibble I had is I wish the undercurrent brewing between daughter and mother wasn't cleared up so quickly. To me, it seemed there was a good, healing dialogue scene missing.

Maybe it's just me.

Carlson's funny example of overcoming life's obstacles, dealing with change, debt management, and finding love where you'd least expect it least will delight chick-lit lovers. Those needing a strong spiritual theme will not find it here. These characters have not yet reached spiritual levels readers may expect. So read it for what it is: a hilarious look at how even bruised lemons can make the most refreshing lemonade.
 
I Really Like This Book  Jun 9, 2008
I found it to be very entertaining. Certainly not one of the best I've ever read, but I'd recommend it for an enjoyable weekend read. I'm looking forward to future Melody Carlson light reads.
 
So Much Fun!  Apr 30, 2008
I loved the transformation the lead character, Cassidy, goes through in this book. I relished it. It's a charming and fun read, nothing heavy. Cassidy's days swing from one side of the pendulum to the other, making this a laugh-out-loud, "You go, Girl" kind of book.
 
These Book Was Made For Reading  Jan 19, 2008
Melody Carlson tells the story of Cassie, a 31-year-old who has the perfect job, perfect boyfriend, and perfect credit...until she loses it all in a 2-week period. She spontaneously decides to move back home to be with her lonely mother, only to find that her mother has become a thin, gorgeous woman with a convertible who is dating someone who Cassie went to high school with. Cassie's meltdown that ensues is so funny and so real - I saw myself in Cassie several times. The end was a bit convenient and tidied things up a little too nicely, but I really liked this book.

"These Boots Weren't Made For Walking" is a hilarious, wonderful, light read! I actually laughed out loud a few times and found myself nodding my head at Cassie's laments to herself. I have been there, and "Boots" is wonderfully real.
